Carpenter makes Cards' Opening Day roster

Pretty good news coming out of the Grapefruit League, where the St. Louis Post Dispatch is reporting that former Horned Frog third baseman Matt Carpenter has made the opening day roster for the (grumble grumble) defending world champion Cardinals.

Carpenter, who batted .067 in his seven-game cup of coffee with the Cards last summer, earned his spot on the big league roster by batting .364 during spring training and will be playing a little first base in addition to third, and also probably some innings in the corner outfield positions.

Tomorrow, we'll take a look at some of the other TCU baseball alumni and how they're doing in spring training with their respective organizations. For now, though- Way to go, Carp!
